Winter Market at Predator

Chantelle Deacon

Predator Ridge and Craft Culture are hosting their first annual Winter Artisan Market at the resort this weekend.

The event will feature 32 craft and artisan vendors, live music, outdoor fire pits and food options.

"We're really looking forward to it, it's a completely different venue," said Karalyn Lockhart, owner of Craft Culture. "We will have 32 vendors set up indoors, which is the feature of the event."

"Outside when guests arrive you can also get some food, there will be fire pits set up with marshmallows and we'll have live music as well."

Three vendors that will be at the market this weekend were available for interviews on Wednesday prior to the event.

"We have a line of dinners and spices and how they work is this here is what's in your pack," said Carmal O'Connell, owner of BC Buds Garlic. "When you open it up you get a shopping list and how to make a dinner but what's cool is there is no gluten, MSG, salt or preservatives, the main ingredient is the garlic that we grow."

"We actually do all from cutting boards to charcuterie boards, cheese boards, barbecue scrapers, herb strippers, everything out of wood," said Bruce Crawford, owner of Crawford Creek Designs. "We try to use as much reclaimed and repurposed wood as we possibly can and we source a lot of it from local craft mills."

"I'm a First Nation artist from Nlaka’pamux Nation and I do Native art, graphic pencil, coloured pencils and inks," said Terry Thomson, owner of Thomson's Finest Art. "I blend nature, First Nation design and pictures of elders in my work."

The family-friendly event is taking place over the course of two days from Feb. 24 to 25.

The by donation market kicks off at 10 a.m. both days and finishes at 4 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday.

All money raised goes towards the Okanagan Rail Trail Initiative.
